The commitment required epitomizes “the thick of thin things”.
Everyone can make their own life choices. I could not believe the sacrifices required for pre-teen/pre-high school. In one of our first meetings they made it clear the commitment had to be total and year round or your son will not receive the attention required to improve with the coaches. That sounds fair, but wow. What a price to pay for little return. Maybe just being there is a victory for many kids that would otherwise get in trouble.
